The remains of a deceased person interred in a plot in a cemetery may be removed there from with the consent of the Director of Public Works or the Director’s designee and written consent of the person who has the right to control the disposition of the remains of the deceased person. If the consent of any such person cannot be obtained, permission by the Board of County Commissioners of Jackson County shall be sufficient. Notice of application to the board of county commissioners for such permission must be given at least 60 days prior to the proposed date of disinterment, personally or by mail, to the Director of Public Works, to the person not consenting and to every other person or authority on whom service of notice is required by the board of county commissioners. This section does not apply to the disinterment of remains upon order of a court or coroner. (Ord. 2872, replaced, 08/21/2001)
